Let the Selkirk House be your basecamp to adventure in Northern Idaho. Located 30 miles from Montana, Washington, and Canada in the Northernmost County of Idaho. The Selkirk House is located at the foot of the Selkirk Mountains in the Beautiful Kootenai Valley. In a private setting on 55 acres.
The opportunities to view Wildlife are never ending. The Selkirk House is just two miles from the Kootenai National wildlife Refuge. Up the road five miles is the Nature Conservancy's Ball Creek Ranch. Boundary County is home to more endangered species than most areas of the country... Grizzly Bears, Woodland Caribou, Lynx, Bald Eagles, White Sturgeon, and Burbot to name a few.
Selkirk House is located just 500 feet from SnowCreek Road which leads to some of the best snowmobiling in the area. Schwietzer Ski Area to the south and Kimberley to the north. Cross country skiing from many locations.
Hunt, fish, hike, mountain bike, boat on the Kootenai River, or just relax and play horseshoes in the backyard.

Birders from Coeur d'Alene have stayed here many times. The acreage surrounding the house is a birders dream with forest, riparian and waterfowl species on the pond and Deep Creek. Mammals (moose, deer and bear) may be seen. Just north is the Kootenai National Wildlife Refuge, The Nature Conservancy's Ball Creek Ranch, and near the Canadian border is the Boundary Creek Wildlife Management Area. The house sits at the foot of the Selkirk Mountains which is riddled with fabulous hiking trails to lakes and waterfalls.
There are many level trails nearby which are good for cross country skiing or snowshoeing, or those who prefer to walk rather than hike.
Another group from our area goes every September for our ladies' "mental health" weekend. We relax, hike, explore, play horseshoes, read, play games and eat! It is peaceful and lovely. A GREAT GET-AWAY!
